Instagram testa novo aplicativo para mensagens diretas — Mensageiro próprio

Instagram poderá contar com chat próprio

Instagram poderá contar com chat próprio

Já conhece a nova extensão do Tecnoblog?

Quando o Facebook resolveu separar o seu chat da rede social, muitas pessoas acabaram não aprovando a ideia.

O Direct, igualmente ao Messenger, tem como objetivo separar as mensagens do Instagram e criar uma área específica apenas para conversas.

Quando você abre o Direct, a primeira tela que aparece é a da câmera. À esquerda, ficam as informações do seu perfil e contas logadas, enquanto à direita ficam as mensagens trocadas com os usuários da rede social.

O Direct do Instagram permite aos utilizadores enviarem mensagens instantâneas entre si, e apesar de não ser um meio tão popular como outras aplicações de mensagens, brevemente isso poderá vir a mudar. Pessoalmente, me incomodo com a divisão porque 99% das vezes que envio algo no Direct é comentando alguma story de um amigo.

Mas dá para dizer que o app Direct terá mais a ver com o Snapchat do que com o Messenger.

O aplicativo ainda não é muito mais do que uma réplica da própria seção Direct do Instagram. Segundo o The Verge, a única diferença são quatro filtros novos, exclusivos do app novo.

Ainda segundo a publicação, os testes com o novo aplicativo começam hoje mesmo, no Android e no iOS, mas apenas em seis países: Chile, Israel, Itália, Portugal, Turquia e Uruguai.
